  • Forum for transformation | State of emergency in the power sector

    8.12.2021 online

    The Polish power industry is sinking into crisis. We can talk about a state of emergency in the this sector. There are several reasons for the crisis - including decisions which have been put off for years, dwindling coal reserves, ageing generation infrastructure and inconsistently implemented restructuring of the sector. Drift and lack of decisions on the directions of further transformation is dangerous from the perspective of the country's energy stability. How to remedy this? What concepts of transformation are presented by experts, institutions and Polish think tanks? We invite you to participate in the online conference "Forum for transformation | State of emergency in the power sector". 8 December 2021, 10.00-13.30. >>>REGISTER FOR THE CONFERENCE<<< Participation in the conference is free of charge, available for registered participants. The conference will be held in Polish, with no English translation.

  • Int-E-Grid | Second meeting of the Polish-German platform on Emobility

    27.10.2021 online

    How to safely integrate electric cars into an energy system that will turn towards renewable energy production?

  • Panel expert meeting | Fit for 55: How the EU intends to achieve increased reduction targets

    30.6.2021 Cambridge Innovation Centre

    In mid-July, the European Commission will announce one of the biggest legislative packages, Fit for 55. It will aim to put the EU on the path to faster reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, so that the Union can achieve the agreed goal of at least 55% reduction in 2030. The European Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) is to be reformed. Even more needs to be done to reduce emissions from buildings and transport, so the Commission wants to make proposals on carbon pricing for these sectors. All this will have an impact on the low-carbon energy, heating and transport transformation, but also on fuel and energy prices.

  • Panel expert meeting | How to give impulse to new investments - experience of Poland and Great Britain with the capacity market

    26.5.2021 zoom

    The capacity market as we know it is about to end. From 1 July 2025 it will no longer be able to support coal-fired capacity. Together with rising CO2 emission allowance prices, changes in the power industry are accelerating, and we need a discussion: how to ensure security of supply by 2030, how to fill the coal gap and how to reduce emissions cost effectively. In this context, an important question is whether the capacity market still makes sense, what are the alternatives or how to change it so that it fulfils its role. The Polish energy system needs new capacities, low-carbon sources, DSR, storage and renewable sources.

  • CONFERENCE: The role of electrification of heating in achieving climate neutrality of the sector

    13.5.2021 zoom

    Poland's heating sector needs modernisation. Pressure to improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions is growing, which will force a technological revolution in the sector - currently inefficient, based mainly on burning coal.  What role can heat electrification play on the path to neutrality? We invite you to participate in the conference. NOTE: conference will be held in Polish.  

  • WEBINAR: Energy transition in Poland. Coal power industry on the turn

    8.4.2021 clickmeeting

    In 2020, for the first time in history, the share of coal in the Polish generation mix dropped below 70%. Renewable sources have slowly started to play a more important role in the mix, as well as gas. In the midst of the pandemic, domestic production has fallen faster than demand, and this gap is filled by energy imports. Watch the Forum Energii webinar! The event was held in English.  

  • Conference | Energy, climate, budget. Forum for the new EU financial perspective

    11.3.2021 youtube

    >>>>>ENGLISH BROADCAST OF THE EVENT<<<<< 'Never let a good crisis go to waste’, Winston Churchill said. The observation seems highly relevant today. The world is struggling with COVID-19, a climate crisis, and social tensions. These huge problems are interconnected and we need to solve them simultaneously. In the European Union, this is a very important moment—the next EU financial perspective is being planned and the Recovery and Resilience Facility has been presented to the Member States. Huge amounts of funds are being mobilised, so this is a great opportunity for crucial reforms for today’s and future generations.   

  • Workshop on the use of National Recovery Funds for the EVs charging network

    10.3.2021 zoom

    In December 2020 European leaders decided to raise the climate target to - 55%. It follows the decision taken a year earlier, which is to achieve European climate neutrality goal by 2050. Very decisive action is required to meet these ambitious climate targets for transforming the way our societies function. The transport sector is responsible for approximately one-third of greenhouse gas emissions in Europe. The implementation of emission reduction plans will not be possible without a deep transformation of the whole transport sector. The optimal scenario for reducing emissions from transportation is its complete electrification. This will only be possible if access to a charging infrastructure that meets the needs of different road transport participants is secured. We invite you to a Polish-German workshop on how the National Recovery Plans should be used to optimally support the development of networks for charging electric vehicles - cars, vans, buses and trucks.   

  • Energy sector by 2030. New energy for change

    7.12.2020 konferencja online

    >>>Click here to watch the conference<<< This will be a decade of change. The challenges we face due to the COVID crisis have been met with a strong response from the EU – the European Green Deal, strengthened by an unprecedented fiscal commitment towards transformation. As part of the Green Deal, the European Commission has proposed a 55% reduction target in the upcoming Climate Law. In practice, this is a chance to solidify the already happening transformation in Poland. Analyses from Forum Energii and other analytical institutions show that this change is achievable while strengthening the three pillars of the energy trilema - security of supply, affordable energy for end users and environmental protection. How do we prepare for the upcoming decade of change? How do we use EU and national funds to drive this transformation? How do we build a new energy system that will be both safe and environmentally friendly? During the conference, we will talk about what the energy sector will look like in 2030.      

  • Panel expert meeting | Green Gases

  • Panel expert meeting | Sector coupling - Polish energy sector climate neutral by 2050

    9.6.2020 zoom

    Achieving climate neutrality is one of the main goals of the European Union. We cannot stay indifferent to climate change and our task is to develop measures that will effectively reduce emissions and stop catastrophic climate change. Transport, heating and energy will have to change as environmental sectors. Electrification of district heating and transport based on low-carbon sources is a huge opportunity, but requires a major change in thinking about the energy transformation.

  • Panel expert meeting | How to "green" Polish district heating?

    12.5.2020 zoom

    In 2019, in the Clean Heat 2030 strategy, we identified four scenarios for reducing CO2 emissions in district heating. One of them predicted its complete decarbonisation by 2050. At that time, however, we did not present in detail the technologies that could help achieve this goal. During panel expert meeting we will present those which will play the most important role in the next decade and will enable us to achieve even 40% of RES in the heating sector in 2030. Together with the Renewable Energy Institute we have analysed their costs, application and specificity. We have not ignored the state of natural resources in Poland, regulations and megatrends. All this was described in the report "RES in District Heating. Technologies that will change the reality".
